Alexandra Macesanu: Romanian girl’s ‘calls for help released by family’

The family of a kidnapped Romanian girl claim police were slow to respond to her emergency calls.

“Please stay with me on the line, I’m really scared,” she said in her final call to the emergency number 112, according to the transcript, which was posted on Facebook.

In response, the officer told her she “can’t stay on the line” because she had other calls, assuring her a police car would come “without fail” within minutes, according to the transcript.

The case has caused outcry, leading to mass protests and the sacking of Romania’s chief of police and other officials. The interior minister has also resigned, saying anyone guilty of delaying the police response would pay.
